Data retention and destruction under the GDPR

The APDL and Sopra Steria organized a virtual breakfast “Guidelines on the retention and destruction of data under the GDPR” on Tuesday, March 30, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.

The content of this event was based on a guide developed by the APDL Technical Commission which had initiated work on the management of data retention and erasure including the treatment of backlogs of data or paper archives.

During this event, the legal framework was recalled and a methodological approach as well as practical examples were exposed. Then the technical aspects of data retention and destruction for the different data formats were discussed and finally a data detection tool was presented.

Here you will find the presentation material and the guide.

The APDL warmly thanks its sponsor SOPRA STERIA for the practical organization of the event as well as the various speakers whose contact details you will find below:

  • Bénédicte D’Allard – Arendt Regulatory & Consulting
  • Sylvie Dessolin – SOPRA STERIA
  • Romain Sabel – BDO
  • Michael Hofmann and Alejandro Del Rio – E&Y
